Nanshy is Cruelty-Free
Nanshy has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals, nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in markets that may require animal testing.
By our standards, we would consider Nanshy to be Cruelty-Free.
Note that there is no legal definition for the label ‘Cruelty-Free.’ It can mean different things to different people. But Cruelty-Free is generally used to imply no animal testing. More specifically, the ingredients, formulation, or finished product are not tested on animals at any stage of product development.
At ethical elephant, we always assess a company’s cruelty-free policy using our Cruelty-Free Checklist. This ensures no animal testing was performed by the brand itself, its suppliers, and by any third parties.
Also, note that Cruelty-Free and Vegan don’t always mean the same thing.
Nanshy is 100% Vegan
Nanshy has confirmed all of its products are vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
The following is a snippet of the email response I received from Nanshy when I asked if all of their products are vegan:
“Yes, Nanshy’s products 100% vegan and don’t contain any animal ingredients.”
Similar to ‘Cruelty-Free,’ there is no standard or legal definition for the label ‘Vegan.’ But it usually means no animal-derived ingredients or animal by-products.
Some makeup brushes are made with goat, squirrel, pony, or other animal hair. However, unless it’s clearly labeled, it’s sometimes difficult to know if brushes are made with synthetic or animal fibers. So it’s best to ask the company and manufacturers.
Where are Nanshy’s products made?
I asked Nanshy where their products are manufactured and they told me:
“We manufacture our products both in UK and China.”
*Note: Cosmetics made in China are not required to be tested on animals. Only cosmetics that are imported and sold in physical stores in mainland China are required to be tested on animals according to China’s animal testing laws.
I hope this article helped you to understand Nanshy’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
